“Some people brought their babies to Jesus for Him to place His hands on them.  The disciples saw them and scolded them for doing so, but Jesus called the children to Him and said:  ‘Let the children come to Me and do not stop them, because the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  Remember this:  Whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.’”  Luke 18:15-17

A preschool can aid parents in early child-rearing.  The value of early child training is indicated in Proverbs 22:6 – “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”  A Christian home has the first responsibility and gives the child his first Christian instruction and training.  However, the church shares this responsibility with the parents, and it strengthens and supports the parents in this effort.  Immanuel Lutheran Preschool can play an important role in a child’s early Christian development.  It is our goal to help with socialization, introduce a structured learning environment, provide the comfort of repetition and the challenges of new experiences.
